The Internet has become the most powerful channel for communication in recent years. In this time of pandemic, it has taken place in the lives of everyone in a variety of forms such as education, communication, business, social networking, online shopping, and online transaction, etc. During this pandemic period, children are more exposed to online networks, and these factors lead to create possibilities for predators to commit cyber crime against children. During this time, children are more likely to be targeted by cyber criminals. According to statistics that was just released by the NCRB, there has been a significant increase of 400 times in the amount of cyber crime committed against minors in the past year. These can take many forms, including phishing, grooming, child pornography, and others like them. It is true that these crimes are only reported once, but it is also true that the vast majority of cyber crimes go undetected since victims only disclose them after the situation has grown more problematic for them. Even though the government has taken a number of different preventative measures and released a number of different guidelines, there has been an increase in the number of online crimes committed against minors.
The purpose of this research paper is to examine the current trend of cybercrime committed against children, as well as different associated laws and measures taken by the government, as well as several protections to prevent cybercrime against children. This research is also carried out in order to develop acceptable answers to the problem of cybercrime committed against minors.
